Men held for selling sex videos at stands

TWO men in Tuol Kork district have been arrested on suspicion of distributing pornography after they allegedly set up multiple stands at which customers could download sexually explicit videos to their mobile phones, a district official said.

Khem Sophoan, 27, and Chhorn Sok Eng, 23, were arrested on Friday at one of their stands, said deputy district governor Sang Sophat Vichet.
He said police had been investigating the two men for “a while”, and that both would be sent to court.

“They have more than 10 places of business, and authorities have informed computer owners in the district to stop downloading the videos before,” he said. “Their motives cause danger for our society because rape cases against underage children have occurred after people watch these sex videos from their phones.”

Under Article 39 of the Law on the Suppression of Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation, the sale, distribution or presentation of pornography in public places can fetch a prison sentence of between one week and one month, and a fine of between 100,000 and 200,000 riels (US$23-47).
